The fourth annual Sunbrella® Future of Shade competition, celebrating innovation in shade and design, has an interesting proposition in store for the Miami Design District: a new shaded space for Paradise Plaza.

Loewe’s first North American store is befitting of its Irish designer-cum-creative-director Jonathan Anderson—classic with a contemporary edge. The boutique, large and luminous, is also supremely nostalgic, as one can instantly tell from the massive 18th-century granary at the center of the space. The hórreo, as it’s called in Spanish, was retrieved from a town bordering northern Spain (Galicia) and Portugal and brought to the boutique as a symbol of Loewe’s cultural fluidity: Past and present, Europe and North America, existing harmoniously in the upscale Miami Design District.

Brooklyn-based sculptor Ruby Sky Stiler’s stunning solo show opens at Locust Projects in the Miami Design District on Saturday, February 28. Miami, with its rapid development and old Florida charm, will identify and appreciate her juxtaposition of functional design and decorative superficies. New pieces that explore the tropical modernist architecture native to Miami come to life in this exhibit, as do previous works more closely related to the artist's ongoing investigation of the female figure.

Leave it to Louis Vuitton to build an architectural masterpiece by Charlotte Perriand in Milan, have it deconstructed and then shipped to Miami just in the knick of time for Art Basel 2013, which ran Dec. 3 to the 8th.
